In this paper we would like to give a small snapshot in time on Modelica tool compatibility today; and discuss strategies for its improvement in order to keep it on a high level. Especially we would like to consider approaches for semi-automatic test and verification frameworks as well as to develop different levels and definitions on Modelica tool compatibility.
